New Retreats and Offerings (June – September)

“Whether it’s with our own mothers, the Mother Earth, or anyone or anything else, we are always in an interdependent relationship with everything.”

~ Lama Tsultrim Allione, from her book Wisdom Rising

With the changing of seasons, we are reminded of the uninterrupted flow that courses through all phenomena. In honoring the many facets of this interdependent web, it is our great privilege to share a variety of new virtual offerings (browse these below). It also warms our hearts to reflect on the words of those who have recently found healing and harmony through our offerings:

“I feel blessed to be able to learn ancient practices – made relevant for modern times – from dedicated teachers and practitioners who embody the teachings and expertly guide me on my journey toward awakening.” ~ Mary Elizabeth Lynch

“The online teachings were excellent. I’ve been to Tara Mandala many times in person, and I felt the energy and blessings of the land and the teachings during the virtual retreat. The teachers and staff were amazing.” ~ Morgan McDonald

“I’m just amazed how brilliant, well organized, helpful, professional and full of bliss online courses from Tara Mandala are. I wholeheartedly recommend it to all craving for perfect teachings, teachers and staff.” ~ February 2021 Virtual Retreat Participant
